I ride with the Klim Tekvest.It sure is comfortable and has saved me from broken ribs already.If I hurt myself I can't make money=can't sled.
Cheap insurance in my opinion,and takes all the weight of my backpack on the hard shoulder pads.I hear a broken stirnum really hurts

I wear one but i wear the fly moto style with the backpack built in. I love it, its perfect! Yea my dad broke his sternum by driving his bars through his chest. I did the exact same thing but even harder and a big scratch on the chest protector and knocked the wind out of me but no broken ribs or sternum

i never ride without a tek-vest. put it off too long and paid the price. there not cheap but worth every penny. mines saved me a few times. (my vest and my transciever have the marks to show it too.)

Yep, I wear one. I won't ride without one, not worth getting hurt. If you have ever had a rib injury, those things are super painful. I had one that got worse continuously for 30 days straight. I might be a puss, but dang man it hurt.
